Explore one of America’s most historic cities when you take an American Airlines flight to Boston. Visit the “cradle of liberty” in Faneuil Hall, now a modern-day market, stroll through the lush Public Garden, and climb aboard a 200-year old battleship in the Charlestown Naval Shipyard when you fly to Boston with American Airlines. Celebrate freedom at Faneuil Hall
, a popular meeting spot since pre-revolutionary times. Along with the ghost (and statue) of Sam Adams and those of other historic figures, it teems with street performers, pushcarts and unique Boston shops and restaurants. Save your hunger for the nearby Union Oyster House, which has been proudly shucking bivalves for almost two hundred years. Catch a baseball game at venerable Fenway Park
and cheer on the beloved Boston Red Sox. The intimate stadium is one of the few remaining originals (it debuted in 1912), with quirky features like the Green Monster, the 37-foot left-field wall that taunts hitters. Ballpark tours are available both on game days and off-days. Clamber around the USS Constitution
, a 215-year-old battleship that retired from active naval service in 1855 and sits docked in Charlestown. You don’t have to know your stern from your prow to climb up on deck, have fun, and meet the sailor guides who lead tours in period dress. Then head to the USS Constitution Museum, which celebrates “Old Ironsides” in art, letters and memorabilia. Ride the swans with the family at the Public Garden
, America’s first botanical garden. Swan boats tootle around the duck pond in summertime, while tulips and other seasonal blooms add bursts of color to the surrounding paths. The bronze statues from the children’s classic Make Way for Ducklings
, also in the garden, are an irresistible lure for the little ones. View art in the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum
, a three-story mansion gussied up as a 15th-century Venetian palace. Its rooms are chockablock with magnificent European and American paintings like Titian’s glowing Europa and a portrait of Isabella herself by John Singer Sargent, and its ornate central courtyard is a great place to take a break.
